Everyone really enjoyed this dish. Have made it a couple of times. Only real down side is that it is a bit messy and time consuming to make. I'm sure more practice will make it easier. Will definitely try again.

Tasty, but I didn't realize that a bigger wok was needed, so it was a little chaotic. Would make again.

It was great. Breading was quite a process and I changed white cider for apple cider and gave it an awesome twist.

This was my first time making this dish and it turned out to be really good one. My four children and hubby really loved it, I will definitely make this dish again.

Love it. It’s got a lot of ingredients and I’m not keen on the whole cornflour and egg mess. But the final outcome was really good. Making it again today.

This was amazing! My husband couldn’t stop telling me how good it was! I used chicken thighs and breast. A little messy for the prep time but well worth it!

OMG A family favourite now awaiting unsuspecting friends for dinner, and they will be asking for the recipe for sure. There is nothing I don’t like in this day off recipe, one tip is to make sure you make enough sauce you want to be generous with that part so everything gets a good coating and you will either want your biggest pan or finish it off in a casserole dish in the oven, because it’s quite a squeeze. Add pancake rolls for a full on night in dish.

Added peas, turned out great

It was OK I didn’t have the sweet chili sauce and used regular chili sauce.. I feel this recipe needs something else in it. Maybe dry mustard? I would definitely make it again with the sweet chili sauce, and see how that turns out.

It tasted delicious. The family loved it. So easy to make. Had to fry the chicken in batches as I did 4 chicken breasts. There was so much!
5 stars for this one, empty plates all the way round, thaught the preparation took the longest,but this was so amazing it was worth it
Turns out really good!

Great recipe, deliciously filling
Heather 22 Jul
This was delicious and the kids loved it too. I had to use quite a lot more olive oil than the recipe said. I still shallow fried it, but I cooked it in a few batches and needed to add more as the batches progressed. I also stir fried some veggies in the pan afterwards and added them all together - carrots, broccoli, peppers.

Made a lot and it was great!
Really easy to follow recipe, and delicious. Made it with dark soy first time, and it was far too dark. Definitely better with light soy.

My family really loved this dish. I however found it a little too sweet but looks delicious amazing in front of your eyes is tasty but I think next time I will make it less sweet by reducing honey and sugar.
